Turning One is not only a huge milestone in your babys life... but also for you as a parent.
You are now both entering toddlerhood and all the joys that will bring.
You have survived broken sleep, days when you didn't even get out of your PJ's because it took you all day to get through the feeding and washing.
Sleep is generally more plentiful for you as a parent.... you understand your baby a whole lot more than this time last year. You have gained back your routine and the days flow with ease.
So this celebration is very special and such a momentous one.
I can't believe its been a whole year since I first met Isla. She was so sweet and gentle back then and was no different when she came in to celebrate her 1st birthday with me.
We always start these milestone sessions with some family photos, after all this is everyones celebration.
Up until this point the cake has been out of sight and as the cake is brought out we wait to see the reaction. Some babies are just not interested... some baby's don't like to have dirty, sticky hands and cry. Isla was quite taken with hers but preferred to bang the cake with a spoon.
No 1st birthday photo session is complete without a clean up and the best way to do this is with a warm sudsy bubble bath. This was Iala's favourite part of her 1st birthday session especially splashing and sending the duck flying out of the bath tub.
